Fox & Friends questions whether Senators Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Byron Dorgan (D-ND) are defecting to the Republican party. They are retiring, Plain and simple. Only Rep. Parker Griffith (AL) has announced that he is switching parties.
This is another example of Fox News taking an obvious falsehood and putting a question mark after it to give it an air of plausibility, which is then believed to be the “truth” by their flock viewers. This is similar to the question, “Did Glenn Beck rape and murder a girl in 1990?“
It may also be important to note that in the House, 14 GOP incumbents have decided not to seek re-election, while 10 Democratic incumbents have made the same announcement. And, in the Senate, six Republican incumbents have decided not to seek re-election, while two Democratic incumbents have made the same announcement.
